If 8 vinyl editions of the surprise Taylor Swift album, Folklore, wasn't enough for you, how about 7 single editions of the lead single Cardigan!! Overnight, Swift released 3 new single editions (CD single, 7" vinyl, 12" vinyl) of the "Cabin in Candlelight" remix of Cardigan, which was also released digitally. The remix features the same vocal track with a slightly altered instrumental. Prior to this remix, Swift released 4 single versions (CD single, 7" vinyl, 12" vinyl and picture disc vinyl) of album version of Cardigan. All 7 editions of the physical singles, some of which don't ship until late November, include digital downloads. All versions disappear when the charting week ends tonight at Midnight EST.
Taylor was predicted to debut at #2 before this remix was released.
Of course, Billboard recently changed the rules that will eventually make these types of releases inelligble chart recognition, since they aren't being shipped during the sales week. The new rules come into effect over the next few months.
